Twenty years ago psychic Sarah Summers fled from the evil that lurked in the woods behind her childhood home after it killed most of her family, but a nasty divorce and financial hardships forced her back when nothing else could have. With her son, Jeremy, she returns to her grandmother's dilapidated house and tries to begin a new life.
She meets a police detective, Ben, who falls for her, and she prays her fresh visions of bloodshed and death deep among the dark trees are not true. Then the murders begin again and Sarah is hurtled back into the familiar nightmare that has haunted her her whole life. The evil in the woods is awake again...and this time it wants her last remaining brother, Jim; her son...and her. With Ben and Jim's help can she defeat it this time...and live?

When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
Kathryn Meyer Griffith is a wonderful writer, especially with any story that involves mysteries. Evil Stalks the Night is filled with suspense and a thrill ride. It flowed smoothly and was easily drawn into this mystery.
Narrator Kimberly Henrie did a great job. Her voice kept me enthralled from start to finish. Listening to her voice was like watching and visualising the story as it unfolded. A great story and a wonderful performance. A perfect 5 🌟 rating.
I loved the main character, she was really easy to relate to.
Stephen King's It, also about a scary as heck creature that kills little kids in horrible ways.
Listening to her voice is like watching a movie. It's effortless, and if I close my eyes, I can easily visualize it.
Not laughing or crying, but there was a point where I had to take a break because it was so scary. Seriously, I'm a mother of a young boy who lives near spooky woods...
Don't read this at bedtime!
Yes, but I always prefer the audio versions. They feel more real, if that makes sense.
I don't want to give away the story, but there is one part with this little girl in it that completely freaked me out.
She made me feel more connected to the characters. She did a very good job.
Great story, great perfomance
"If you go out in the woods today..."
Yes. I think that this was the author's first book but it is skillfully written for all that. It's a well paced, spooky tale of a family being hounded to extinction. Meyer Griffith plays on the fairy tale theme of something nasty in the deep, dark woods, weaves in a haunted house and adds a splash of psychic ability.
Sarah is a likeable protagonist although sometimes her life seems just a little too tragic to bear. So for that reason I think I liked Detective Ben the most, he adds a much need touch of lightness.
No, I haven't listend to this narrator before but I would happily do so again. She has a pleasant voice and she does a good job with this spooky tale.
